Echo Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017
6 In Stock
The bright, pure flavors of our Sauvignon Blanc echo the spectacular beauty of New Zealand’s South Island. A beautiful light straw color with a tint of green. Zesty citrus and floral aromas lead to balanced flavors of passion fruit, melon, fig and gooseberry, followed by a clean, refreshing finish. It’s exquisite on its own or paired with lighter fair.
Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the pristine vineyards of Marlborough, surrounded by jagged mountain peaks, brilliant blue skies, and a maze of crystal clear inlets. With its bright, exuberant flavors and crisp acidity, every sip of Echo Bay Sauvignon Blanc is pure New Zealand.
Our grapes were hand-selected from Marlborough’s premier vineyards, where sea breezes and a long, cool growing season allow the fruit to develop complexity and exceptional acidity. Winemakers gently cold-ferment the grapes in stainless steel, then secure each bottle with a convenient screwcap, ensuring each glass is as pure and fresh as the first. None of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in order to maintain crisp varietal acidity.
